Magnetic Monopoles in a Metallic Compound
If you break a bar magnet in two, each of the two pieces will subsequently possess a north and south pole. So far, independent mobile magnetic monopoles have only been found in a single class of magnetic crystals. An international team of researchers, including scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich, has now discovered monopoles in a “Kagome spin ice” material, which is electrically conductive and could therefore offer great potential in scientific and practical applications.

Spring School 2020
POSTPONED TO 2021 -- 51st IFF Spring School - Quantum Technology
Imagine what we would know - or better: would not know - about the structure and dynamics of microscopic systems if scientists such as Albert Einstein (Nobel Prize 1921), Niels Bohr (Nobel Prize 1922), Werner Heisenberg (Nobel Prize 1932), Erwin Schrödinger, Paul Dirac (Nobel Prize 1933) and many others would not have imagined and formalised quantum mechanics.
